About Crawley Wasps

The History of Crawley Wasps

Founded in 1991, Crawley Wasps have been instrumental in the successful development of girls football in the Crawley area. From the early days of playing 7-a-side on full size pitches in the Sussex Girls League, the club have expanded to over 100 playing members in teams at all levels from under 11 to under 16 and seniors. U11 and U12 teams now play mini-soccer in the Sussex County Women and Girl’s League while the U13's play 9v9 and the U16's play 11-a-side in the Sussex County Women and Girl’s League.

Crawley Wasps have had various ‘home’ grounds but in 2010 Wasps moved from Pease Pottage to Ewhurst Playing Fields in Crawley where we now maintain our own playing and training facilities with mini soccer, youth and senior pitches.

Wasps have helped pioneer the development of ladies and girls football in Sussex. Previously playing in various Surrey leagues, Wasps were a founding member of the Sussex County Women & Girl’s Football League with teams representing the club in the league’s inaugural year in 2002/2003.

In 2005, Wasps began their sponsorship of league and cup competitions for Crawley schools, hosting play-offs and finals and publishing results on the Wasps website. Wasps remain committed to the development of girls football in the area and in 2006 were awarded Charter Standard accredited status by the FA.

Wasps have provided the Centre of Excellence teams at Chelsea and Brighton with many of their players and a number of ex-Wasps players now play for major clubs including Chelsea and Arsenal. One has won a scholarship to play in the USA and others have been selected for the England squad at youth team level.
